The Foundation Louis Vuittonis pleased to announce the opening of its new exhibition “Elsewhen” displaying a whole new installation by French artist Philippe Parreno at the Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia.
As part of the Collateral Events of the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, this presentation has been produced in the framework of the Foundation Louis Vuitton “Hors-lesmurs” program. This program, inaugurated in 2014, showcases previously unseen holdings of the Collection in the Espaces Louis Vuitton in Tokyo, Munich, Beijing and Venice, thus realizing the Foundation’s commitment to mount international projects and make them accessible to a broader public.
Emerging on the art scene in the early 1990s, Philippe Parreno constantly changes the relationship of an artwork and its exhibition ‒ the very notion of the exhibition is a creative piece; a polyphonic entity that he conceives as a large automaton composed of diverse media, ranging from film, IT and soundtrack, to drawing, sculpture and animation.
These elements come together in a scripted space, a choreography using a recurrent vocabulary that notably includes marquees, balloons, music, sounds, films and objects to create an intangible sensory experience.
Time is also a core component, setting a tempo for the exhibition: time-coded computer programs create sequences, control sound, lighting effects and activate spaces and objects.
Location: Espace Louis Vuitton, Venice
Schedule: until November 24th 2019
